The Sha of Latency Strikes a Demoralizing Blow
Cat finally agreed to leave off pet battling so my original character, my Hunter, could FINALLY get to 90 and fly around looking for beasts to tame. Do you see how pissed off that bear is? I don’t blame him at all. For the past two days doing anything has become excruciatingly painful to endure.
It’s a testament to the unyielding resolve of Hunters that she would not be swayed from her mission. Really more like she figured Cat would be back to play with her pets so this was her only window. She made it by logging in playing until it became impossible, logging out, logging in … yeah, painful. And when I say logging out, that wasn’t even possible, log out had to be done from the Task Manager.
I know nothing about networks but it seems if everything was fine and no changes were made on this end, the latency must be caused by something other than my computer. So I did a pathping, yeah kind of stupid as I have no idea what it says except, that can’t be good.
Again, talking completely out my … left ear, doesn’t that looks like Comcast and Blizzard aren’t getting along. Correct me if I’m wrong, since I’m trying to analyze this from a position of complete ignorance. Make sense huh. But that’s how desperate I’ve become.
So I google and find there’s a thread on the forums. And apparently there’s another for Comcast users in the state of Washington. It’s not just me then.
I know better than to try to contact Comcast whose fix would be to try to sell me something. So I looked into doing a ticket but really, I don’t think the WTF folder has ever in HISTORY been responsible for anything. I think it’s blameless. I think it’s just busy work to get us off their back. And they want my MSinfo file that has all my errors. I think that’s too invasive. I took a look and saw an entry that said, “Derp just dropped her tuna sandwich on the keyboard, ha ha.”
Yeah, way too much info there. So here I sit with nothing to do. WoW is unplayable now, but I continue to try. At some point I will probably give up but I have to keep morale up among the troops.
